Happy birthday!

How do we love you, let us count the ways! Nanda, it’s good to have you on Ricochet, even on a temporary basis, & it’s great we’ve got the chance to talk to you here. Let us know a bit about the upcoming celebrations. Happy Birthday! You’re the top!

More postmodern conservatism

From Albion’s Seed to Mr. Trump, a Tocquevillian tour with Mr. Poulos–race is in it, religion is in it, & democracy. It’s really good writing. I’m now listening to Democracy in America on audiobook–the first English translation is on librivox, by the way–& I was thinking about the difference between the politics & religion of North & South only to run into this column. I guess I don’t have to bother writing. I’m just here to recommend it.

Quiet Around Here

Wow! No one with anything to say. And we have such rich material to talk about. Must be SOMETHING someone wants to put up. Nanda has celebrated her first anniversary as an honourary Marine. That’s noteworthy. I am still working in Albuquerque. NM medicine seems kind of sad – at least to me. I had become accustomed to better. Seems a lot of basically lazy or avaristic docs. Kind of mean of me to say, but that’s how it looks from the outside. ?Anyone have anything interesting in their lives.
